  • Airway macrophages are activated in asthmatic subjects. Peripheral blood monocytes from these subjects present some functional features of activation, but their membrane markers are not known. Recently a new subtype of blood monocytes, CD14+/CD16+, has been identified which possesses the characteristics of tissue macrophages. A study was carried out on nine normal subjects and 11 untreated asthmatics having variable severities of the disease to examine the phenotypic characteristics of… CONTINUE READING
